Great stay at Byre Cottage

"Just back from a fabulous stay and can’t speak highly enough of Eden Retreats and their little extras that make you feel special on arrival, and of course the owner Erica who was so welcoming . Lovely cottage and great company to work with. Will definitely use them again!"

July 2021

Home from home

"We’ve booked and stayed at two properties through Eden Retreats - Byre Cottage in the Lake District and The Old Watermill in Staffordshire. I have to say the booking process was so easy and all communication was extremely friendly. Both properties were to a really high standard, exceptionally clean and really well equipped. The welcome packs were out of this world with freshly baked bread and cakes alongside lots of other treats and so much more than you would ever expect. Owners at both properties made us feel so welcome! We will definitely be booking again soon."

Booking Flexibility and Great Service So far

"I found Eden Retreats by chance while browsing though various sites trying to book a staycation for New Year. I had a few questions and these were all answered very quickly by Martha. I have now booked a Staycation for the New Year and we are all looking forward to going. Booking process was simple and easy to do via the online platform and an email confirmation was sent with all the details. Fantastic that you can choose what day to arrive and what day to leave, this was one of the main reasons for choosing to book with Eden Retreats as well as the location and price for this time of year. Other companies restrict you to Monday or Friday arrival/departure with either 3 or 7 days stays only, which we feel is absolutely useless. Eden Retreats we feel is much more flexible and we are looking forward to booking more staycations during the year."

Easy booking with peace of mind

"I was thrilled to come across the Eden Retreats website, as it lists such beautiful stays across the country. Booking was really straight forward, and I felt safe committing to accommodation as their policies seem very fair on flexibility. Very excited for our trip in July! Thanks Eden Retreats."

Brilliant personal service!

"I booked our holiday cottage via the internet. After leaving email address l waited for confirmation which l didn't appear to receive. I rang the helpline and the lovely people l spoke with were so helpful.The emails had gone to junk mail for some reason best left to the world of cyberspace! A lovely lady called Martha called me back to ensure all was well. It's that sort of personal touch that will take this new company a long way. We know how nice the accommodation is as we have stayed there when it was with a different company. On the service we have so far received l would highly recommend the company."

Easy Booking, helpful team

"We found Eden Retreats when looking for a staycay this half term. We found the booking process simple, user friendly and informative. I had some additional questions before booking and used their "chat" function and got an almost immediate reply with all our questions answered. We look forward to our break in May."

Customer friendly booking process

"I have just booked a week long stay in May with Eden Retreats. I found the website to be really easy to navigate, with a good level of information on each of the available properties (including clear pictures!). The booking process itself was very easy and I was all booked within minutes. The follow up care has been good and very helpful. Very much looking forward to our stay in May now."

What’s not to love!?

February 2021

"Up to now everything has been very easy! Had questions about the uncertainties of the covid situation and they were so quick to reply, they offered help if needed with bookings. We're looking forward to the stay and I will be reviewing again after."
